Much more common in OK and TX and far Western AR, and scarce here are the beautiful Painted Buntings. I saw nesting pair this morning here and was able to take a few photos. They seem to be in semi-dry areas, old fields, along fence rows and frequently occur with Dicsissels, Eastern Kingbirds, Blue Grosbeaks, and Scissor Tail Flycatchers. If you find these birds along a dry road with a fence with brush against the fence posts, you may be able to find a Painted Bunting.
